Michael Dorst has been named the principal of Manhattan High School.
Dorst has been an assistant principal at Manhattan High School since 2008.
“I’ve been fortunate to be part of Manhattan High School for the past 11 years,” said Dorst. “I’m honored to have this opportunity, and I look forward to working with our amazing students, staff, families, and community in our continued growth as a great school.”
Current Manhattan High School principal Greg Hoyt announced his retirement last fall.
“I am confident there will be a smooth transition in leadership from Mr. Hoyt to Mr. Dorst,” said USD 383 Superintendent Marvin Wade. “We are fortunate that both are respected professionals who have already demonstrated consistent dedication to the students, staff, families, and everyone associated with Manhattan High School.”
Dorst will begin his new position on July 1, 2019.
